Notes from the Winemaker:
A tight, minerally wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. Unusually prominent pear and lime fruit aromas and flavours are brought beautifully into focus by a tight line of bright natural acid and a long, dry minerality. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage.


Ratings & Reviews:

94 Points - James Suckling:
"A really stylish white with white stones, dried apricots, white blossoms, lemon curd, jasmine and caramelized citrus peel. Medium to full body, some really nice phenolic texture, very zesty acidity and an pinpoint finish. Drink now." (June 2018)

93 Points & #57 Top 100 Wines of 2018 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Melon, yellow apple, white peach and quince flavors give this an opulent feel, harnessed by honeysuckle and quinine accents through the finish, showing refinement and length in the end. Drink now through 2021. 2,100 cases imported. - JM (Nov 2018)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"The 2017 Chardonnay was whole-bunch-pressed, destemmed and matured for nine months with partial malolactic and light bâtonnage, in around 30% new wood, of which 40% is not toasted. It has an attractive bouquet of yellow plum and a subtle patisserie scent, the oak neatly integrated. The palate is well balanced with slightly lower acidity than its peers, good depth, a slightly waxy texture and a touch of candied orange peel toward the finish. Enjoy this over the next five or six years, possibly longer." - Neal Martin (Aug 2018)
